~*~

Who is AMANDA FERAL?

Description from Happy Hour of the Damned:
Seattle. One minute you're drinking a vanilla breve, the next, some creepy old dude is breathing on you, turning you into a zombie. And that's just for starters. Now, the recently deceased Amanda Feral is trying to make her way through Seattle's undead scene with style (mortuary-grade makeup, six-inch stilettos, Balenciaga handbag on sale) while satisfying her craving for human flesh (Don't judge. And no, not like chicken.) and decent vodkatinis.

Making her way through a dangerous world of cloud-doped bloodsuckers, reapers, horny and horned devils, werewolves, celebrities, and PR-obsessed shapeshifters--not to mention an extremely hot bartender named Ricardo--isn't easy. And the minute one of Amanda's undead friends disappears after texting the word, "help" (The undead--so dramatic!) she knows the afterlife is about to get really ugly.

Something sinister is at hand. Someone or something is hellbent on turning Seattle's undead underworld into a place of true terror. And this time, Amanda may meet a fate a lot worse than death...

Zombie comic to watch out for:

Victorian Undead
Sherlock Holmes vs Zombies
Written by Ian Edginton
Art by Davide Fabbri
Cover by Tony Moore
Variant cover by Simon Coleby

Description from publisher:
"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth." Those are the words of Mr. Sherlock Holmes, the world's first consulting detective, yet even he finds his skills tested to their limit as he and his erstwhile comrade Dr. John Watson are confronted with the most extraordinary case of their career – the dead are returning to life! Can a plague of Biblical proportions be far behind for Victorian London? And who – or what – is behind the resurrection of these ravenous revenants?

David Hine, a graphic novel writer since the 80s, was brought in by Radical to adapt a story from the Web site fvza.org and turn it into a comic book.

Zombie book(s):

Dawn of the Dreadfuls
prequel to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
by Jane Austen and Steve Hockensmith

Release date: March 23, 2010

Description from publisher site:
In this terrifying and hilarious prequel, we witness the genesis of the zombie plague in early-nineteenth century England. We watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a naïve young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. We laugh as she begins her first clumsy training with nunchucks and katana swords and cry when her first blush with romance goes tragically awry. Written by acclaimed novelist (and Edgar Award nominee) Steve Hockensmith, Dawn of the Dreadfuls invites Austen fans to step back into Regency England, Land of the Undead!

Robin Hood and Friar Tuck:
Zombie KillersA Canterbury Tale Told in Verse
Written by Arthur A. Freeman
Review by Steven Dawes
--an ebook

Description from publisher:
Medieval civilization was under threat from the undead.

When lion-hearted Richard ruled the roostOf England, he decided that to boostHis regal reputation he should mountA war to wrest from Turkish men the fountOf Christendom; yet in that desert landA zombie plague emerged from 'midst the sand.A necromancer's alchemistic spellReanimated corpses bound for Hell(And even bound for Heaven's pearly gate).

Soon after 'twas apparent that the fateOf all on Earth--the evil and the good--Was in the hands of Robin of the HoodWhose outlaw men, along with Friar Tuck,Against rampaging hordes of zombies struck.They fought to save the likes of you and I,Not caring that one slip might make them die.Their tale lies here, within this humble book--I pray you'll spare the time to take a look.

Zombie bit(s):

Double Zombie Wedding in Manchester, U.K.

With inspiration and celebration of the Left 4 Dead 2 video game, two couples wed zombie style.

About Left 4 Dead 2
Left 4 Dead 2 is the sequel to the best-selling and critically-acclaimed multiplayer smash from Valve. Left 4 Dead 2 is set at roughly the same time as the original – just after the outbreak that turned most of the population into various zombie mutants. Players assume the role of 4 new “Survivors,” each with their own personality and new dialog. The game leads these “Survivors” through the southeastern region of the US - from Savannah, Georgia thru the bayou country, and climaxing in New Orleans’ French Quarter. The title adds melee combat to the award-winning L4D style of play, with items such as a chainsaw, frying pan, axe, baseball bat, and more.

collapse of civilisation unless dealt with quickly and
aggressively.

That is the conclusion of a mathematical exercise carried out by
researchers in Canada.

and

Even so, their analysis revealed that a strategy of capturing or
curing the zombies would only put off the inevitable.
In their scientific paper, the authors conclude that humanity's
only hope is to "hit them [the undead] hard and hit them often".

Zombie Author tidbits:

So, what's next for you?
-- I have completed a novel called Boyfriend From Hell, about a girl, her single mother, and the boyfriend from hell...literally. And I'm currently writing my first book series.

My New Book Deal
-- Amanda Ashby's untitled middle-grade series about a girl who accidentally gets turned into a djinn (genie) the day before starting sixth grade and has to learn to deal with her new powers without her mom finding out, to Karen Chaplin at Puffin, in a three-book deal, by Jenny Bent at The Bent Agency (world English).

The three books will be coming out between 2011 and 2012 and I also have another young adult book coming out in 2011 so it looks like I'm going to be a busy writer!!!!

PPZ Graphic Novel Coming in March!
-- Del Rey will publish a 160-page adaption of PPZ - to be written by comic book vet Tony Lee (X-Men, Spider-Man, Doctor Who), and inked by Cliff Richards (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - in March!

Constant State of Change
-- Writing about the conflictions that come with being a teenager isn't about guessing, or staying up on the latest trends or slang, it's about being honest with yourself and exploring those same feelings that we tend to ignore as adults. It's being an adult that allows you as a writer to temper those emotions with experience, turning them into something more meaningful than reality television regurgitation. Or, that's the idea anyway.

MY SO CALLED DEATH By Stacey Jay
March 2010 From Flux Books
Now Available for Pre-order!!

Is there going to be a movie of The Forest of Hands and Teeth?
-- Seven Star Pictures has picked up the movie rights for The Forest of Hands and Teeth but it's still too early to tell if they'll develop it into a movie. As Publishers Weekly reports, "Supposedly Seven Star is developing the project for an-as-yet-unnamed A-list starlet, and fast-tracking the project with a first draft of the screenplay already in the works."

Is there a sequel to The Forest of Hands and Teeth?
--Yes, The Forest of Hands and Teeth is the first of three books. The second, The Dead-Tossed Waves will be coming out in Spring 2010 and the third will be out Spring 2011.

Adam Selzer excerpt:

Q: Did you worry that no one would believe that a girl would not notice her boyfriend was a zombie?

--Oh, sure. I thought "that's okay for a song, but how could she not know? Is she stupid?" I really wanted her to be smart. I don't like writing books about stupid people. So the way it works is that Doug, the zombie, wasn't dead long enough to decompose much before he became a zombie. He just looks about like a regular, sincere goth guy who has some weird health issues. There are plenty of clues, but you can ignore a lot of things about someone you like. And that becomes a theme of the book - obviously you have to overlook flaws in any boyfriend or girlfriend, but where you do draw the line? At finding out they're dead? At having to die yourself?

Will there be a third book in the Generation Dead series?
-- Yes! There will be a third book in the Generation Dead series (and a fourth and a fifth, if I have my way). The third book will be called Passing Strange. I'm working hard on it as we speak to try and get it in shape for a May release, and as usual I'm making things far harder on myself than usual. But I love the story and I hope you will, too. I don't like to show my cards early, but I will tell you that a different character takes center stage for this one...

Were you a goth in high school?
-- I can't say I was straight up goth, although one of my favorite albums at the time was the Damned's Phantasmagoria, which is cited by many as being one of the main albums that started the movement. I had all the rare Bauhaus singles, too.

But I think instead that I was an almost perfect blend of the five personality types from The Breakfast Club. Well, I was more Basket Case than Princess, and more brain than jock, and not much of a criminal although I did sport fingerless gloves and a trenchcoat and listened to Slayer. Maybe it was more 30%, 10%, 25%, 20%, 25%. Although I really didn't do anything princess-y, except I was a little spoiled.

Ah, heck with it. I was a goth.
